Street Lighting

Street lighting districts are special taxing districts created by county ordinance, which allow for the installation and operation of street lights within a specified area or community. The recurring costs of operating the street lights are then assessed to the property owners within the specified area or community through annual tax bills. Requests for the creation of street lighting districts must be made by petitioning the County Commission.

For more information, read the    FAQ and    Procedures for Petitioning to Create a Street Lighting District.

For questions or assistance related to street lighting districts, please call Chris Peterson at (863) 535-2295, or Scott Lowery at (863) 535-2292.

Please note that due to the complex nature of this process, it is suggested that you contact our office before submitting a petition.
